From Verdant Tea

This Bilochun is a pre-Qingming shade-grown harvest picked by the He Family and meticulously hand finished by Mr. He. Every leaf and bud cluster is carefully twisted over consistent heat without the use of machines, yielding a very subtle and complex taste experience with an aftertaste that rivals the finest Dragonwell.

I finally got around to tasting this tea after having it for a couple of months now. In comparison to my old standby Teavivre’s Bi Lo Chun, this version does not disappoint, although it does not necessarily stand miles above Teavivre’s either.

As far as tasting notes, I found this to be light, floral, and sweet with a hint of fruit. There was also a slight hint of astringency, although as usual with Bi Lo Chun it was in no way overpowering. Just a hint at the end of each sip. I found this Bi Lo Chun to be less floral and fruity than Teavivre’s variety, although I will have to taste them side by side to be absolutely sure. Overall I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys lighter, floral green teas.

Spring 2019 harvest

This was a 5g sample that I split over 2 sessions. I’m a commitment phobe who hates buying tea in large quantities so I love the fact that Verdant offers samplers for all of their teas. Aside from 25g of regular Laoshan green which is pretty consistent every year, I bought a dozen or so 5g samples of every one of their green teas.

My Instagram note aptly sums up this tea: “Delicate body, dew like sweetness, and refreshing.” This year’s crop was light and delicate, like spring mix salad. Notes of fennel, oats, and a little toastiness. Very nice overall, but not quite as good as the spring harvest from a few years ago.

“dew like sweetness” — I like it.
